Notorious bigot to picket at Congregation Emanuel on Monday

The infamous Reverend Fred Phelps and his merry band of followers from the Westboro Bapstist Church will be picketing and projecting a general sense of ignorance at Edgewater’s Congregation Emanuel (5959 N. Sheridan Rd.) on Monday, August 3rd. You may know the good Reverend as the “God hates fags” and “God hates Jews” Reverend. He’s also got a thing for protesting at military funerals.

Rabbi Michael Zedek of Congregation Emanuel has asked members of the community to peacefully stand against this showing of hatred and bigotry by gathering at the Congregation by 11:00 AM.
